Patient and public engagement strategy

Patient and public engagement strategy development

In July 2018, the Trust’s Board of Directors approved a new Patient and Public Engagement Strategy (PDF 490Kb). The strategy was developed by the Trust patient and public engagement (PPE) team, together with the Trust patient and public engagement strategy steering group and through engagement with staff, patients, public governors and Foundation trust members and our local healthwatch bodies.

What is the strategy about?

We believe patients, their families and carers, together with staff and the wider community, should be partners in the design, development and delivery of services. The support and contributions of patient-public stakeholders continues to be important, as we work together to find ways to provide high quality care and services in different ways, but with constrained resources.

The findings of the Trust’s annual PPE impact report (PDF 204Kb) demonstrate the numerous and wide-range of activities of the many departments (clinical and corporate) across the Trust. This updated PPE strategy continues to build on this work.


Join us, get involved and make a difference

Are you interested in helping to shape the future of Guy's and St Thomas' and Evelina London? We are delivering a number of programmes to review and transform the way we provide care across our hospitals and community services, for both adults and children. To help support these, we are planning a range of events and activities from October 2020 to January 2021.

We are currently looking for patients, carers and Foundation Trust members who are interested in or have experience of using our services to take part. There is a list of services and topics to choose from in our sign up form.

If you want to get involved in any other Trust services or programmes, we would like to hear from you too. Get in touch and let us know what you are interested in.

Do I need to come to the hospital or community sites to take part?

To help keep everyone safe, all events and activities will be held remotely using a variety of communication tools such as videoconferencing platforms, telephone calls, and the post. Wherever we can, we will adapt activities and provide support so that you, or someone you care for, can take part.
